Here are a few pitchers that I believe are criminally under-owned: Bud Norris – Baltimore Orioles SP 2014 has...

Dugout Digest – the Orioles are making the AL East weak

You might be hearing a common theme when talking about the AL East, one that completely sells the Baltimore Orioles short. The narrative surrounding the division is that “it’s just not that good”, which seems to infer that Baltimore is just lucky, or whatever.

J.J. Hardy and the Quick Turn

My Sunday afternoon was spent covering the Cleveland Indians and the Baltimore Orioles game at Progressive Field. In the fifth inning, something caught my eye from the press box: Quite the double play turned by the #Orioles to kill a potential rally with two on in the fifth. Nice snag by Gausman, quick turn by […]

Baltimore Orioles making race for the AL Pennant more than just a two-team battle

It’s never safe to make presumptions—especially in the realm of sports prognostications.

Despite obvious evidence to the contrary, many of the division’s most loyal followers spent the season’s first-half refusing to accept that the AL East was facing a period of significant transition that isn’t likely to be led by the group’s most historically prolific powers. But now that the non-waiver trade deadline has forced poker-faced hopefuls throughout the league to...
